IAVCEI Commission On Explosive Volcanism: Search For New Leaders

IAVCEI Commission On Explosive Volcanism: Search For New Leaders

As mandated by IAVCEI rules, the Commission on Explosive Volcanism (CEV) started the process of holding an election for new officers. Each Commission should have one or two active leaders or chairs (point of contact) and a board of officers. Leaders and board of officers should be elected every 4 years (or every 2 years if desired), within the Commission.
For this reason, we would like to take expressions of interest for new officers of the IAVCEI Commission on Explosive Volcanism. 
The primary aims of the Commission on Explosive Volcanism are:

  • to foster modern, process-oriented studies of pyroclastic rocks,
  • to encourage communication between scientists from the various branches of research directed to such studies,
  • to provide input into other areas such as volcanic hazards and atmospheric impacts, and
  • to promote interest in explosive volcanism and its products. Research interests focus on the processes of explosive eruptions, volcano evolution, and magmatic influences on eruption dynamics.

Leader(s) and board of officers should promote:

  • advances in volcanology by coordinating the affiliated members and boosting the organization of working groups to study specific topics, or by some other mechanism.
  • the participation of young scientists in the activities of the Commission and as board officers.
  • collaboration with other Commissions.

A requirement to act as an officer is to be an IAVCEI member first and then a CEV member. You can become a CEV member by filling out the form at the following link:
Please let us know if you are interested – or if you would like to nominate a colleague – by 10 March 2023. Ideally, we would like to see some diversity in terms of gender, geographic representation, scientific background, and nominations from both senior and early-career scientists. If you are potentially interested but would like to know more, do not hesitate to email us at cev@iavceivolcano.org.
We look forward to hearing from you about this leadership opportunity and answering any questions you may have.

Kind regards from the current commission co-leaders,
Mattia de’ Michieli Vitturi
Daniele Andronico
